Contactless crankshaft measurement in a single setting using a triangulation laser
Until recently, crankshaft measuring used to be a time consuming process due to the complexity of the measurement features (caused for example by the excentric rotation of the pin bearings with a particularly large amplitude). A further innovation step - the synchronization of the XY axis combination with the rotary motion of the pin bearings - now makes it possible to measure the main bearings as well as the pin bearings in one single setting.
Advantage of the system:
The short cycle time of the total measurement now enables our customers to conduct a 100 percent quality control and classification of the crankshaft during the current production. Moreover, the new procedure allows the traceability of the measured values in order to automatically adjust the processing machines. All in all, this results in cost savings while improving the quality at the same time.
